About Infant Hearing Loss

Children with hearing loss can learn to listen and talk!

hear ME now helps Maine children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families every step of their journey to communicating in the hearing world.

  • If your baby has been diagnosed with hearing loss, you have a choice in early intervention providers. Our goal is to provide parents with the tools you need to understand your child’s hearing loss, make informed choices about early intervention providers and find the path that is right for your family.
  • Starting early is important because long before a baby begins to make sounds the auditory brain is building the language centers a child will need for life.

There’s a continuum of communication opportunities for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Some families choose listening and spoken language, others choose signed language and some choose a combination of spoken and signed languages.

hear ME now supports families who have chosen multiple communication opportunities. We work with any family who desires our support.
